Bright, colourful and beautiful, Samsung’s KU6500 is a marvel of home entertainment. This 4K set’s HDR Pro blends with the brand’s Active Crystal Colour technology to add immense gloss to your content. Top that with the hyper-immersive curved screen and cutting-edge SmartThings home control and you have the complete package.
Active Crystal Colour HDR
Forays into colour-boosting High Dynamic Range (HDR) have begun, and Samsung are one of the forerunners. As members of the newly-founded UHD Alliance, they've engineered HDR lifted by their Active Crystal Colour technology. This tech delivers over 17 million colours and a 13% wider colour space than conventional UHD. This makes the shades sharper, the image deeper and the colours all-the-more eye-popping.
Awesome 4K Upscaling
The KU6500's Ultra HD screen offers a dramatically enhanced viewing experience. With four times the pixels of Full HD, you’ll be able to see every single detail in 4K – no matter what resolution the content is. This is with thanks to Samsung’s innovative upscaling technology which converts lower resolution content, such as live TV, to a level of detail which is near UHD quality. Upscaling is a process through which a lower resolution signal or data source is displayed at a higher resolution. The upscaling process interpolates additional pixels from the source data, and produces a clearer picture on your 4K screen than a non-upscaled image.
This curved screen wraps around your eye-line for an immersive viewing experience. Improving the viewing angle, reflecting less glare from windows and displaying a stunning edge-to-edge picture, this curved television will bring out the very best in your favourite games, movies and programmes.
Stunning Ultra Clear Panel Contrast
This panel has an anti-reflective coating that reduces glare to give inkier blacks and pop-out colours. It ensures that the top-line tech that’s gone into the screen won’t be washed out by ambient light, giving you the best experience possible.
Samsung Smart Hub
Now faster with further ultra-high definition streaming, catch-up and games services, is the new Smart Hub platform. This is quick and easy platform marks a massive step forward for the connected home. Access the latest apps to experience the best UHD content from Netflix and Amazon, with more providers coming soon*. You can even browse content easily, searching for your favourite programmes and movies while you are still watching TV. Powering the seamless interaction is the powerful Quad Core processor which significantly boosts performance with faster access to Smart features. Enjoy super-fast response times, as you use and toggle between apps, online services and live TV with ease.
Control Your Connected Home
Developed alongside SmartThings, Samsung’s SUHD TV has built-in tech to let you do anything from switching on your lights to locking your doors. It can connect to over 200 SmartThings compatible devices and put your home under complete wireless control – all from your TV**. This way, you’ll be able to set the right scene in your living room without getting off the sofa.
With TVs getting slimmer and built-in speakers getting smaller, choosing the right sound system is more important than ever. Soundbars enhance your TV’s sound quality and add that extra audio punch to all your movies, games and TV programmes. More affordable and easier to set up than a full size speaker system, they don’t compromise on quality either.
Take a look at our full range of soundbars.
If you want to connect your TV to a blu-ray player, games console, soundbar or soundbase then you'll need a HDMI cable.
